Diafrix

One of the acts closely associated with independent Australian label Illusive Sounds, Diafrix consists of Azmarino and Momo, African refugees who met at an arts center in the Melbourne suburb of Footscray.

The two aligned in 2003 and established their amiable and upbeat brand of rap, inspired by funk and reggae. After they spent a considerable amount of time developing their performance skills, Diafrix released their debut album, In tha Place, in 2006. Between its release and that of 2009's Concrete Jungle, the duo continued to tour extensively, including festival appearances at Glastonbury and Big Day Out. The third Diafrix album, Pocket Full of Dreams, came in 2012. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
